Another player that Josh Allen is going to need to step up this week is tight end Dawson Knox. The former third round pick has had a quiet start to the season after his breakout year last season.
This year, Knox has only nine receptions for 71 yards over the first three games. One area in particular where he could make a big impact is in the red zone.
Last year, Knox had six of his nine receiving touchdowns come inside the 20-yard line. However, this year he hasn’t been involved in this part of the field with only one target to start the year. The Buffalo Bills’ offense as a whole has also struggled in the red zone and have scored touchdowns on five of their last nine trips to the red zone.
The Baltimore Ravens for the most part have done a pretty good job against tight ends this year but if the Buffalo Bills get inside the 20 this week, I would imagine Ken Dorsey calls up a few plays for his starting tight end.
